Dean Smith admits Brentford have a feel-good factor right now as well as momentum heading into tomorrow's clash with Sunderland.
The Black Cats arrive at Griffin Park after a torrid start to life in the Championship after relegation from the top flight.
Brentford won their first league game at home last weekend against Millwall, while Sunderland have only won once on the road this campaign.
Smith, speaking at his pre-match press conference this afternoon, is delighted for his players, who have certainly had a buzz this week following that London derby victory last Saturday.
"It's been a good week, the lads have trained very well and we're on a good run of form at the moment," he said.
"We're unbeaten in five and there have been some good performances along the way, so the players have every right to train well and enjoy the week.
"We feel we're on a decent run and we just want to stay under the radar, to be honest.
"We have to take each games as it comes, we have a confident group of players and we believe they're a very talented group of players who want to work hard for each other.
"There has certainly been a lift after that result last weekend. All the injured players coming back has given everyone a boost, too.
"I believe there is momentum behind us right now. It has been hard sitting here when we haven't been winning games and saying how positive the players are and how well they've been playing."
Brentford supporters may expect three points against a struggling Sunderland side tomorrow, but the Black Cats have a few big names who can be a threat on their day.
Smith can see why some fans will have three points, not just one, on their mind come kick-off.
"I just think the way we've played this season, we have played 12 and been very good," he said.
"The supporters have been part of that and the journey with us, so because the players have been playing so well, I can understand the fans being expectant.
"But we are playing against very good teams. We have to make sure we are consistent in what we do."
